The Iowa Hawkeyes women’s team got another big win on Friday as they took down the 7th seeded Michigan State Spartans 87-72. Iowa had both McKenna Warnock and Caitlin Clark go off for doubles-doubles, but it was Monika Czinano who led the way with 27 points.
Now the Hawkeyes will need big contributions from all three again, and likely some others as they seek their second Big Ten Tournament Championship in three years. Iowa faces off with top-seeded Maryland looking to avenge a 111-93 loss to the Terrapins back in February.
Can the Hawkeyes turn up the defense to keep pace with the Terps? Will Maryland be able to slow down Iowa’s law firm of Clark and Czinano? We’ll know that and much more very soon.
